Sometime in the next week or so I’m planning to update this site to the latest version of Movable Type Pro.

As usual, this means I need to blow away all my designs and templates, because the idiots at Six Apart don’t grasp backwards compatibility.

However, they have enough great new features that, once again, I’m sticking with MT rather than switching. While WordPress is still getting better, it’s still a very good tiny little minitruck compared to a somewhat clunky semi; ie, wordpress does a tiny job well, but is years away from doing a big one at all.

Six Apart keep pissing me off; but the product is still very, very far ahead of anyone else in the market. So I’m riding it a little longer ’til someone comes up with an option that’s enough better to make the switch worth it.

I say this only so that when my site suddenly goes to a generic layout, you few readers who’re still around know why.

  1. Hello Karl —

    We’ve never met but I’ve come to know you from afar over many years of dropping into the moronosphere. I’m sorry about the loss of your mother. I haven’t had to deal with that yet despite my parents being well into their 70s. I wish you the best on that regard.

    Anyhow, I was filling out some insane linked-in profile because where I am, (corporate-o-rama Midwest) that’s the thing to do. I’m a writer and do so for a living for a research consortium that seeks to progress sustainable transportation for the U.S. That’s another story.

    The point is, I appreciate the work you do, the things you write, and how your live and express your life.

    Keep it up. It’s inspiring.

    Take care — you kind-of of a stranger.

    Todd
